Chavecito drops another bombshell

He says that if he were a person of any power in the US, he would follow Ecuador’s example and convene a constitutional assembly–democratically elected–to write a new constitution.

And if that sounds shocking, remember–the original US constitution was not written by a democratically elected assembly, nor was it ratified by the general populace. Yet it’s being held up, still, as a model for democracy around the world, while the democratic constitutions of Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador are being demeaned from none other than Washington, DC?

The mind boggles.
